Spicy Rotel Chicken

Tired of the same ole chicken?  Add a little spice in your life.  Besides it too darn hot to grill outside.  It's been over a 100 degrees for days and days.  
I needed something simple and easy to make for dinner. So here it is...


Open your mouth wide and taste this!



Only 4 main players!



Ok, flour doesn't count as a player, you should have this in your pantry!
1/2 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper.



Spray the breasts with cooking spray and dredge in the flour.  
Shake off any excess flour.



Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil until hot.  Then place chicken breasts in hot oil and 



brown on both sides.



Pour rotel tomatoes and white wine (or chicken broth) over the chicken breasts; stir to mix well with pan drippings.  Heat until boiling, cover and place in a 400-degree oven for twenty minutes.



Remove from oven and sprinkle a little cheese on top of each breast and cover and place back in oven for five minutes.



I served with brown rice and french green beans.



Just look how tasty!
